Books for Black History Month

As we commemorate Black History Month, we'd like to share a reading list of our recent books on African American history and culture. Our new books include a groundbreaking continental view of fugitive slave migration, a study of the impact of Marcus Garvey's black nationalist philosophy around the world and across the twentieth century, a biography of civil rights advocate Robert R. Church Jr. that reveals the behind-the-scenes victories of black voters and leaders during the Jim Crow era, and more. View our collection here.
